The Mihan Dairy & Ice Cream company belongs to the Mihan Food Industries Group, located 22 km. From Tehran on Saveh Rd., was established in 1974 and today has a 65% market share for ice cream and 50% market share for UHT (Ultra-high-temperature processing) Milk.

“There were no dead or injured … Firefighters were dispatched to the factory in Islam Shahr district,” a fire department official told state television, adding that efforts are continuing to control and extinguish the large-scale fire, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.

Several other accidents have occurred at facilities around Iran in the past few months, including a fire at the underground nuclear facility Natanz in July, which caused significant damage, but Iranian officials said operations there were not affected.
